Artist Gathering

Bonifas Fine Arts Center 700 First Avenue South, Escanaba

Attention all Artists!!! We will be offering monthly artist gatherings at the Bonifas on the first Monday of the month at 6 until 8 pm. These gatherings will be for artists to get together and talk about what they are working on currently. Get inspiration and meet like-minded people that just want to talk about what they love to do! Thanks to the efforts of Diane Kribs-Mays and Kate Oman, we are excited to offer this to all of our artists. We are going to test these gatherings out for the next few months, see how they go, and hopefully, if there is continued interest, we will continue into the new year. We are hoping to provide artist challenges as well as some show and tell opportunities. These suggestions are to push artists to continue to create. The challenges are optional of course.
